[NEWS] The Bane Invasion Has Started!

Discussion in 'UO Legends' started by a Rabid Chipmunk, Dec 18, 2010.

  1. In my duties as secondary town crier, I felt the need to inform everyone that the Bane Invasion has started in Skara Brae! Come out and help put down this invasion of our town!

    I saw a few brave souls battling the bane but this individual was the only one who held still long enough for a picture

    Some followup information:

    It seems all of the "regular spawn" has a chance to drop a "Focusing Gem of Virtue Bane".

    [​IMG]

    When clicked you get this message: "Using this on your weapon will make it a rage focused weapon and turn it brittle." Clicking it again brings up a targeter and after you select a weapon you get the Focus, and Brittle mod added to whatever weapon you had selected.

    [​IMG]

    The big ice colored guards also have a new drop, which seems to be rare, though I could just be extremely unlucky.

    Thats it for now, probably more to come.

    Wait a bit before using those. There's a thread on UHall where a few peeps are saying it actually dropped the damage they are doing. Might be buggy, might not, I don't know for sure.
    Just sayin...


    edited in: Never mind, seems the focus thing I read was a sash that made spells do less damage. My bad. You guys'll be old and absentminded some day too :p

    Its both the Bane Crystal, & the Spell Focus Sash this what Logrus posted:

    Actually I believe the damage bonus should be bypassing the 300% DI cap.
    Armour ignore damage from the players will not receive bonus or penalty.

    The first hits receive a steep penalty which decays rapidly. After that the bonus builds slowly over the next hits until it caps at 20 %. Once at 20 % the next 5 hits maintain the + 20% damage rate. After that the focus builds up again from the penalty.

    If all hits are doing equal damage, the damage output is just a little bit above even.

    However, the levels are constant and predictable so a player can choose to take advantage of that damage increase.

    --------------------------------

    (So you could build up focus on regular hits, or low level quick spells, and then when you peak, Flame Strike, Crushing Blow etc... taking advantage of the larger burst damage)

    However at the time of this post the bell in Brit was the only one installed at least in tram.

    I've been watching for any of the shards to claim recapture of a town after losing to the Bane, has anyone seen such a notice?

    I want to lose some cities just to see what happens. I think it's a real shame everyone is so obsessed with katanas and thus attacking the bane.

    Still not quite sure what is going on. I am assuming that we are suppose to be attacking the red NPC, well at least that is what have started to do. Will see what it is all about.

    Well the background story is that Virtuebane, a demon, is trying to take over the government of all the major cities. You may choose to support him or oppose him. If you oppose him killing all the red npcs in town is fine, if you want to support him find the meer or ophidian camp which should be somewhere around and kill them.

    A successful defense clears a town of all the red npcs, a failure leaves the giant ice colored bone demon guards in town.

    Made the same mistake the other day. My WW lasted 2 hits

    So how do you defend the city? Is it an amount of red npc killed in a certain time frame? Or does another stage come into effect? I have recovered a couple of focusing gems. The above threads dont really dive into to much detail on them. What are there purposes?

    Thy have been less than forthcomming with details about what gives a win and what makes a defeat, my opinion and it just that an opinion, is that there is a set number of guards we have to kill for a victory. But that's just a guess.

    The purpose currently is to either prevent ot enable (depending on which side you support) Virtuebane to take our cities under his controll.

    Focusing gems and sashes give bonuses to melee and spell damage respectively. The first five hits or so come at a penalty, followed by increasing damage hits until a cap of 15% increase. The cycle then repeats. These items do break the damage caps so used correctly they can be quite helpful

    That's all I know.
